I have the CM Center because the CMC2 won't fit in my stand...I really, really wish I had the CMC2. Only way to make it fit would have been to modify my stand, cutting out part of the front trim. The CMC isn't *bad*, but it's just...kind of blah, at least to my ears. I've heard the CMC2, and could hear the difference immediately. YMMV.

If you do end up going with the CMC, work extra hard to dial it in. After I ran my room correction, it had it set to "small". I changed it to "large", and that made a big improvement. Again, YMMV.

Ok, thanks. Will try to check it out locally. To be honest, I don't really care for the center so much. For movies, as long as we can hear the dialogue, I am fine. Main purpose is music. I normally listen in stereo anyway, but sometimes like to turn on Dolby surround processing on my Onkyo 818. That's when the center matters to me because what I have is not timbre matched to the CM9s. As long as the CMC sounds good for music applications, I think I will be good to go.
